    Excellent company!

    Went with Go Beyond Adventure to their rock climbing holiday in El Chorro, had a fantastic time, very well organised and a fantastic atmosphere to the entire trip. Also used them for the Bubble soccer and their one-day climbing lessons, again, everything was top notch and a really good set-up!

    I had an excellent time on this trip. We were well looked after by the climbing instructors Dane and Lloyd who injected a lot of fun into our Trip. The rock climbing was fantastic and the setting amazing! The experience was so good that I have gone back to do this trip again.

  • A MUST DO!

    From the start, Dane was funny and helpful. We had never done real rock climbing before, and Dane knew how to cater the experience to us... I cannot recommend this experience enough. It is a MUST DO for anyone going to Dublin. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to rock climb while overlooking Dublin.
